The writer of Hebrews states: “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses.” ~Hebrews 12:1
Sometimes I wonder what these witnesses think of us? If you did not know these are the ones who have gone on before us. They lived this life in these bodies, and are now glorified.
I like to look at it as a pyramid, like one on the one dollar bill. It has four sides, north, east, south, and west. At the bottom is us. Its hard for us to understand someone on the north side if we are on the south. It is such a great distance. An example is the different cultures, races, ethnicities, religions. At the bottom someone on the east must travel a great distance to understand the west.
The intetesting thing is the higher up the pyramid you go the easier it is to understand each other. The distance from one another becomes shorter and shorter.
At the top is the eye of God, this is also where these witnesses peer from heavenly windows. They are probably sad, at the same time understand how it once was to live at the bottom without understanding.
Today on this earth we may not be able to reach the eye of God. What we can do is let go of our divisive nature through prayer, meditation, and right action, moving higher up the “pyramid.” By doing so you will be closer to your fellows who are different from you. You will be able to start seeing not with human eyes but with eyes of God.
Have a blessed and safe Holloween my friends.
